So I guess my question is, can an Oppo 203 do with a 5050UB what a 6050UB can do natively?

I don't know of anyone on this forum who is running an anamorphic lens with the 5050. Could be it doesn't work. Could be most people who can afford an anamorphic lens are either buying the 6050 or an even more expensive projector designed to be used with an anamorphic lens. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Any answer I give would just be an educated guess. My inclination is no you cannot.
sorry to bother you but I know you are extremely knowledgeable. Do you know if you could use the Oppo 203 to facilitate using an anamorphic lens with the Epson 5050?

IMHO, an anamorphic lens seems like an unnecessary expense and adds a level of complexity that is negated by the lens design. See the AVS Forum review
that states, in part, "... if you have a 2.40:1 aspect ratio screen. You can enjoy many widescreen Hollywood movies zoomed in, so that the image fills the screen; no anamorphic lens required."
